Sydney Piano Lessons
At Sydney Piano Academy we specialise in students who have never learnt the piano and do not know how to read music. In order to make our lessons both educational and fun, we combine piano playing with theory work and music games.
Our selected books are derived from a range of methodologies that have been tried and tested over the last decade.
For the very young beinner (ages 4 - 6), SPA teachers use the Bastien Piano Basics Series and Faber Piano Adventures. This is supported with FUN theory sticker books by Ying Ying Ng and Lina Ng.
For the young beginner (aged 7-10) we use the Bastien Piano Basics Series (beginning at Primer Level) and either theory books by Alfred's or Lina Ng.
For older beginner, SPA teachers use the Alfred's Piano Course who have never played the piano before and do not know how to read music.
Generally, each student works through approx 2 beginner books, until they are beginning to read competently. After this, we do encourage the AMEB Piano and Piano for Leisure series, with piano exams as optional.
All music is available through SPA, or you can purchase it yourself through any print music retailer.
